Princess Hours

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch -

THE cast of Princess Hours was greeted with scream­ing fans when they ar­rived for a meet and greet in Sun­way Pyra­mid last month. Af­ter watch­ing a cou­ple of episodes of the

Thai series, I can see why.

Set in the fic­tional Bhutin, the royal fam­ily is putting pres­sure on Crown Prince In­dra (Sat­taphong Phi­ang­phor) to ful­fill his grand­fa­ther’s wish

– he must marry com­moner Khan­ing (Ung­suma­lynn Si­ra­p­at­sak­metha).

But In­dra is in love with some­one else, Min­nie (Than­chanok Rit­naka), and even asks for her hand in mar­riage. But she turns down his pro­posal in or­der to pur­sue her dreams of win­ning an Olympic medal in archery.

In­dra and Khan­ing get off on the wrong foot (Khan­ing threw up a mouth­ful of wa­ter on In­dra) but even­tu­ally gives in to their fam­ily’s wishes, and weds.

These two couldn’t be more dif­fer­ent. In­dra is quiet and brood­ing most of the time while Khan­ing is loud and opin­ion­ated. See­ing the two per­son­al­i­ties clash gives rise to some hi­lar­i­ous mo­ments on the show.

It’s also nice to see that the lead­ing ladies of Princess Hours are strong-willed women who speak their mind. Not many would dare tell a prince off like Khan­ing. And what about Min­nie who turned down a mar­riage pro­posal from a prince! – Ken­neth Chaw
